Baker Industries Named a Top U.S. Machine Shop

MACOMB, Mich., August 1, 2018 – Baker Industries today announced that it has been named Modern Machine Shop’s Top Shop in the Machining Technology category.

“Honors Program winners are vetted and selected by me from a top-tier benchmarking group established based on answers to select survey questions,” says Derek Korn, Modern Machine Shop’s Executive Editor who heads the magazine’s Top Shops benchmarking program. “Baker Industries has a wealth of advanced computer numerical control machining equipment and has adopted additive manufacturing technology to create more efficient tooling solutions for its customers.”

We believe our intuition has led us to our Top Shops status.”
